Norwich City have today been linked with a swoop for one of the hottest properties in the Scottish Premier League - left-back David Murphy.

The Hartlepool-born star has been playing for Hibernian since 2004 after being released from Middlesbrough and is considered by many as the best full-back north of the border.

But the 23-year-old has admitted he is considering a move away from Edinburgh.
